Le livre des mélancolies

Works for clarinet and string quartet by contemporary Canadian composers. Born in Poland, Piotr Grella-Mozejko has lived in Canada since 1989. …River to the ocean… was commissioned by clarinettist Jean-Guy Boisvert in 1996. Montreal composer Jean Lesage was born in 1958. Le Livre des mélancolies (1999) was commissioned by the Société de musique contemporaine du Québec [SMCQ]. Tim Brady is a composer and guitarist who has created music in a wide range of genres ranging from chamber and orchestral music to electroacoustic works, chamber opera, contemporary dance scores, jazz, and free improvisation. Slow Dances - 1999 was commissioned by Jean-Guy Boisvert and the Quatuor Bozzini.

Particularly interested in the music of his contemporaries, Jean-Guy Boisvert has frequently premiered new works by Canadian composers. Moving freely from avant-garde events to traditional concerts, the Quatuor Bozzini was characterized by the Irish Times as a “group which gets its teeth into music: quiet or loud, fast or slow, these Canadian musicians play with compelling engagement.”
